ALMS 2009 – Falken Tire Porsche RSR

As promised, here are some pictures of the Falken Tire Porsche RSR in action at the Long Beach Grand Prix this past April.  The Porsche runs in the GT2 class of the American Le Mans…it had a great start in Long Beach with a chance of getting on podium but due to some mechanical issues, the car had to retire early.  The next race will be in Altanta for the Petit Le Mans, 10 hours of racing!!!!

Here are some photos from the Long Beach race.

Urban Junkie

About a month ago, I was hired by Urban Junkie of Anaheim, CA to photograph models for their new ecommerce online store.  I was actually super stoked since I wanted to begin photographying more people.  They wanted a simple, generic look for their site, so here are some samples.

I don’t think their new site is up yet, but here’s the web address to their current site.  Check them out if you can.

Teammate Rivalry!

I took this photo during a Formula Drift event in Atlanta and while I was going through the images, I found this.  Right away, it looked like these two were going to go at it.  On the left, that’s Daijiro Yoshihara, one of Falken’s drift car drivers.  On the right, that’s Tyler McQuarrie, another Falken drift car driver.  Although good friends, I thought I’d see if I can stir up a little teammate rivalry!!

Magazine Print Ads

Wow…it’s been forever since my last post!!  I’ve been super busy and haven’t had a chance to post anything until now…but even now, I can only post a few things.  Some of you may know, although I do freelance work on the side, I do have a full time job with Falken Tire as their full time photographer.  A good portion of my job is to shoot various cars (street or track, hence all the car photos from my previous blogs) for ads, web, collateral, etc.  Below are some samples of our 2009 magazine print ads.  All the ads are submitted into various car magazines like Super Street, Motor Trend, Car & Driver, and Racer Magazine.  So here’s a snap shot of how some of my photos are used.
